Brampton Transit Facts

Our System

Brampton Transit is a pay-as-you-board transit system. Entry is by cash, PRESTO, or valid transfer. Exact fare is required on buses.

In 2005, we restructured our routes to a grid system to provide better service and lay the foundation for further growth – because Brampton is growing and so is our ridership!

In 2010, we launched our Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service, Züm, along Queen Street. Main Street and Steeles Avenue Züm services launched in 2011 and 2012. 


Our Facilities

We have two facilities: the Clark Facility (185 Clark Boulevard) and the Sandalwood Facility (130 Sandalwood Parkway West). The Sandalwood Facility was built in 2008 to help address the rapid population growth in Brampton and the need for more transit services.
